Gwyneth Paltrow’s New York Kids’s House can be out there for $ 15.5 million
Before Gwyneth Paltrow launched her wellness brand Goop, she was best known for starring in films such as Shakespeare in Love and Seven. She previously lived with her parents in a townhouse in the Upper East Side of New York, a property you can now own for a healthy $ 15.5 million.
According to public records, film producer and director Bruce Paltrow and Emmy Award-winning actress Blythe Danner owned the house from 1984 to 1992. This would have been in Gwyneth Paltrow’s teenage years when she attended Spence School, a private all-girls academy equal to is around the corner from the property.

The house, which is five stories and 7,205 square feet, is a fairly traditional Renaissance-style townhouse. It was built in 1890 by architect Walter Reid Jr. and its location is – for now at least – quite advantageous. All of the surrounding houses are low profile so they don’t obstruct the townhouse’s large windows and let in lots of light.
Many of the original details have been carefully maintained, including the house’s six wood-burning fireplaces. There is also a garden behind the main foyer which is great for entertaining. The dining room and living room are both on the second floor.
The master bedroom and library are on the third floor, and all of the guest rooms – the house consists of seven beds and seven baths – are on the fourth and fifth floors. One of the rooms on the fourth floor has access to a private terrace overlooking the garden.
The library can be converted into a home office and the basement can be used for storage. According to the listing, there is also a ripe orange tree in the back garden.
Paltrow eventually left her 92nd Avenue home while attending the University of California at Santa Barbara. She eventually dropped out to devote herself to acting. It didn’t leave New York entirely in the dust, however. Her Tribeca apartment sold for $ 10.7 million in 2017, and she still has a home in the Hamptons.
The story goes on
Your former excavations in the Upper East Side may not exactly scream for goop, but they still have a lot to offer the architecture fan with so much incredible woodwork, parquet floors and other beautiful and historical details.
